Happy Scrappy Halloween
Yup...it's November 4th, but I've already done both J and O's Halloween pages. I'm not normally this efficient, but I've been feeling especially crafty this week and reeeeeeaallly didn't want to clean the (absolutely filthy) house. Problem solved. Push back the housework and scrapbook (okay...I actually did get the house 'sort of' cleaned when I was done...about 3 minutes before P walked in the door...phew)!
O was one seriously cute dragon, and J totally rocked her spider costume (and LOVED every minute of wearing it). For O's layout, I used primarily Fancy Pants Designs 'Trick or Treat' with a few extras from other lines and for J's it was pretty much all American Crafts 'Halloween.' I really liked the bold, bright colours of both kits and really couldn't pick a favourite if I had to. I was lucky to snag both kits from www.scrapbooksteals.com at a discounted price. This is most definitely my favourite website to find scrapbooking deals (enter online shopping addiction...and YES, they ship to Canada)! They also have an online gallery on their Facebook Fan Page where you can check out other layouts done by some pretty great gals, not to mention enter your own layout for a chance to win a prize! Every Wednesday, www.scrapbooksteals.com posts a Mid-Week Mojo Sketch on their blog (blue circle at the top of their website) to provide some inspiration for your own layout. O's layout just happens to be based on the sketch for MWM#16...the sketch this week was a guest sketcher, Jessica Fancher, who provided a fantastic jumping-off point for my Halloween page!
